London Councils - House prices in London: An economic analysis of London’s housing market

This paper looks at the level of London’s house prices from an economic perspective. It looks at the fundamental processes that drive the market for buying and selling homes, considering the extent to which the observed changes in house prices are reasonable, and the possible long-term consequences of house price inflation for London. While highlighting potential issues for particular groups which may have long-term economic consequences, this paper focuses on the price of homes and costs of housing in London in economic terms. It therefore primarily considers the private market for owner-occupied and mortgage-backed housing.
